On-Stage-Stands, the leader in innovative accessories for the working musician, is proud to introduce the
new MS7201QTR Quarter-Turn Round Base Microphone Stand. Adopting the same technology found on
the MS7625B and the MS7625PG, the MS7201QTR was designed to aid in set-up and tear down, a
decidedly tasking feat.
The round base stand has been an industry favorite for decades, and has remained virtually unchanged
since it was first designed. Weighted bases are preferred over tripods because of their stability and small
footprint, yet folding tripods are a more common sight in portable systems because they setup faster than
their threaded counterparts. The introduction of On-Stage Stands MS7625B Hex-Base Quarter-Turn
stand offered musicians their first chance to combine the setup ease of a tripod with all the advantages of
a weighted base, but we heard the clamor for a round-base version. On-Stage Stands therefore
designed the MS7201QTR.
The MS7201QTR has the look and functionality of the classic round base microphone stand with the
instant threadless quarter-turn end. The threadless end mates with a unique J-slot in the familiar round
base of the MS7201QTR. In one swift motion, the user only needs to push down and rotate the shaft ¼-
turn clockwise to lock, or push down and rotate ¼-turn counter-clockwise to remove. With the
MS7201QTR, stripped threading is a thing of the past. What's more, the sheer convenience of the design
means users who prefer weighted stands, yet opt for tripods to save setup/tear down time, can now setup
a quality weighted base stands instantly.
The 10” round base is constructed from sand-cast steel for strength. Six rubber feet on the underside of
the base keep the stand stable. A die-cast steel mid-point clutch effortlessly allows height adjustments
from 34” to 60”. The entire stand sports a scratch-resistant finish and is built to last gig after gig.
The MS7201QTR is priced at $49.99 (List), 29.95 (MAP), and will be shown for the first time at Winter
NAMM. It is slated to ship to dealers in March 2013. Be sure to visit Booth # 5940 to test drive the
